Abrupt surveillance by the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority seems to have caught the Renegade Air management off guard, in a leaked letter sent to Renegade Air by the KCAA.
According to the KCAA letter, despite prior notification, no meeting room was provided for the entry meeting and Renegade staffers were scrambling for a suitable meeting room while the inspectors stood at the corridors.
” Despite prior notification with instructions on how to prepare for the inspection, Renegade air was not prepared to engage with inspectors. There was scuttling in a bid to collect evidence which was not provided until 11:25 am 2 hours from the time the inspection commenced and after the inspecting team leader had called off the inspection” Reads part of the letter to Renegade Air Accountable Manager.
The KCAA has accused the Renegade Air management of working in silos.
Silo working occurs when several departments or groups within that organisation do not want to share information or knowledge with other individuals they work with. More often than not, silos form as a direct result of a conflicted leadership team.
Embattled Airline Silverstone found a way to come back to the Kenyan skies after an imposed engine halts following numerous sell accidents that put the firm in the negative limelight.
In February 2021, Silverstone had announced the intention of coming back to business and they had applied with Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) for the approval of rebranding.
Due to the failed inspection by the KCAA that was terminated due to lack of preparedness by the airline, the KCAA now says there shall be no addition or inclusion of aircraft into Renegade air Ltd until an audit is completed and all issues addressed.
Looks like it’s open season on KCAA again. Almost all airlines are being caught being deficient. Are we going to see another Silverstone type of crashes soon?
